  • Prairie Ridge ousts Cary-GroveFeb 21, 2014 12:00 AM
    It wasn’t as if Prairie Ridge’s game plan was any secret. Don’t leave Katie Barker alone. And the Wolves didn’t — again. Prairie Ridge jumped out to a 10-0 lead, never gave it up, and played smothering defense on Barker all night in a 46-42 win over Cary-Grove Friday in the championship game of the Class 4A Cary-Grove girls basketball regional at Elroy Fitzgerald Gymnasium in Cary.

  • Cary-Grove a surprising No. 1 seedFeb 20, 2014 12:00 AM
    Cary-Grove coach Ralph Schuetzle and Jacobs coach Jimmy Roberts expressed surprise for different reasons when seeds for the upcoming Class 4A Elgin boys basketball sectional were released on the IHSA website Thursday afternoon. Cary-Grove (15-10, 7-4) was named the No. 1 seed at the Crystal Lake Central regional, followed by Fox Valley Conference Valley Division brethren Prairie Ridge (15-10, 6-5), Jacobs (13-12, 7-3), Crystal Lake South (14-10, 3-7) and Dundee-Crown (6-16, 2-8). Crystal Lake Central (3-21, 2-8 FVC Fox) is the No. 6 seed.

    Jacobs’ Riedel has high hopes for stateFeb 20, 2014 12:00 AM
    Jacobs girls gymnast Allison Riedel did not have a 2012-2013 season to remember. Riedel suffered a Lisfranc injury at last year’s Fremd sectional that prevented her from competing in the state finals last year. “Basically I broke eight to 15 bones in my foot,” she said. “The main bone supporting my arch broke and the bones connected to the arch folded in. I had two surgeries and two wires and two screws put in. It was not a good injury. It was really hard watching the state meet last year knowing I should have been competing. The injury has only made me that much stronger of a gymnast.”

     
  • Dundee-Crown falls to Prairie RidgeFeb 18, 2014 12:00 AM
    The first-quarter statistics for the Dundee-Crown boys basketball team Tuesday night could be described as ugly. The Chargers had as many field-goal attempts (7) as points (7). They had 11 turnovers. They did not make a field goal in the second quarter — and they only took two shots in the quarter. Yet somehow, D-C was only down by 10, 17-7, at halftime. But the deficit was too big to get out from as the Chargers fell to Prairie Ridge, 45-36, in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division action in Carpentersville.

    Egekeze hits 1,000 but Huntley falls againFeb 15, 2014 12:00 AM

  • Fremd’s Christine Radochonski dashes toward the vault during the Conant sectional Monday night.

    PR, Fremd go 1-2 at ConantFeb 10, 2014 12:00 AM
    Prairie Ridge co-op and Fremd were neck and neck from start to finish at the Conant sectional on Monday. But the Wolves capitalized on the vault, their final event, to spring ahead of the Vikings and secure their third consecutive sectional title with 148.525 points in Hoffman Estates. Fremd took second with 147.675 points, followed by Barrington (143.675) and Prospect (142.925). This much is known after the first of four sectionals: Prairie Ridge, which won a third-place trophy in 2012 and a second-place trophy last season, became the first of four automatic qualifiers to advance to the girls gymnastic state meet on Feb. 21 and 22 at Palatine High School.

     
  • Prairie Ridge storms back to beat Jacobs Feb 8, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Jacobs boys basketball team fell victim to the Prairie Ridge snowball effect on a snowy Saturday night in Algonquin.

  • Rafferty in fine form; Prairie Ridge wins at Lake Park Feb 5, 2014 12:00 AM
    Elk Grove’s Amelia Rafferty started the season on the sidelines, but the Grenadiers senior came back with a vengeance. Rafferty injured her right hand in early November and did not return to the gym until late December, but she more than made up for lost time on Wednesday at the Lake Park regional. Rafferty was in a zone from start to finish in taking second place in the all-around (37.825). Prairie Ridge co-op was also locked in, securing the regional title with an impressive 148.375l points in Roselle.

    Crystal Lake South happy with FVC runner-up finish Feb 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Sure, Crystal Lake South coach Ross Ryan would like to have hoisted the Fox Valley Conference wrestling tournament championship trophy Saturday at McHenry High School. But Ryan was happy with his team’s second place conference finish. Wrestling without 195-pounder Brian Pence, the Gators (163 ½ points) were runner-up to Crystal Lake Central, which claimed top honors with 199 points. Cary-Grove was third a half point behind South with 163 points.

  • McHenry holds slim lead in FVC tournament Jan 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    McHenry will head into the final day of the Fox Valley Conference wrestling tournament just ahead of Crystal Lake Central and CL South when action resumes Saturday morning, beginning with the semifinal round at the Warriors’ West campus. Both Central and South trail McHenry by 4.5 points, 88.5 — 84.0, while Dundee-Crown and Huntley round out the top 5 with 75 and 71 overall points. Cary-Grove stands sixth with 70 points.

     
  • Huntley closes in on FVC Valley title Jan 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    Trailing 15-11 at halftime, while shooting 20 percent along with standout sophomore center Ali Andrews scoring only 3 points, Huntley girls basketball coach Steve Raethz knew the complexion of the game had to change if his Red Raiders were going to stay undefeated in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division play. It turned out to be a tale of two halves for the Red Raiders. With Ali Andrews scoring 19 of her game-high 22 points in the second half, Huntley outscored host Prairie Ridge 36-27 during the final 16 minutes in posting a 47-42 conference victory.

     
  • Dundee-Crown can’t slow down Prairie Ridge Jan 21, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Dundee-Crown boys basketball couldn’t limit Prairie Ridge’s runs Tuesday night. The Wolves had three runs in which they outscored the Chargers by at least 10 points and came away with a 54-43 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division victory in Crystal Lake.

     
  • Huntley rains 3s on Prairie Ridge Jan 18, 2014 12:00 AM
    Threes were the way for Huntley to counter the crowd around Amanze Egekeze in Prairie Ridge’s variety of zone defenses on Saturday night. Senior Riley Wicks hit five 3-pointers and the Red Raiders went 11-for-19 behind the arc as they pulled away to a 59-47 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball victory in Huntley.

  • Painful win for Prairie Ridge against Grant Jan 4, 2014 12:00 AM
    Prairie Ridge’s boys basketball team kept hitting shots, and then a Wolves player hit the court. Hard. Starting guard Matt Perhats rolled his right ankle during the second quarter of Prairie Ridge’s 64-42 nonconference win over visiting Grant in Crystal Lake on Saturday night. It’s been a tough run for Grant lately. The Bulldogs (7-6) lost to Richmond-Burton in the championship game of Marengo’s E.C. Nichols Tournament three days after Christmas and have started off the New Year with back-to-back losses on the road, giving them their first three-game losing streak of the season.

  • Prairie Ridge topples Bartlett Dec 27, 2013 12:00 AM
    With Bartlett leading Prairie Ridge 19-12 late in the first half, Wolves coach Corky Card called timeout and got in his players’ faces just a bit. Prairie Ridge responded with a 7-0 run to end the half. The Wolves carried that momentum into the second half, turning the tie game into a 60-39 win in the consolation round of the Hinkle Holiday Classic at Jacobs Friday afternoon.
